Work-Related Injury Attorney

If you’ve been injured on the job, call the attorneys at Alex R. Hernandez PLLC

Over the past century, workplace safety conditions have improved immensely, but that does not mean workplace injuries no longer happen. In 2020 alone, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported more than 2.1 million non-fatal work-related injuries. If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury while on the job, our attorneys can help. 

Although no industry is immune to workplace injuries, transportation, warehousing, manufacturing, agriculture, forestry, and fishing are among the most common sectors to report injuries. If your injury was caused by an employer failing to put in place the necessary safeguards, you may be entitled to compensation. Our team at Alex R. Hernandez Jr. PLLC can offer you legal guidance while ensuring you receive the maximum amount you deserve

When should I contact an on-the-job injury attorney?

According to the 2021 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index, the top 5 causes of workplace injury are:

  • Overexertion 
  • Falls on the same level
  • Falls to a lower level
  • Being struck by an object or equipment
  • Other exertions or bodily reactions
  • Not providing comprehensive safety training during onboarding
  • Not providing ongoing safety training to warn employees of emerging threats
  • Not providing proper safety equipment to employees
  • Failing to install quality workplace ventilation systems.
  • Failing to install barriers aimed at preventing employees from falling over ledges

While at times injuries such as these are unpreventable, that is not always the case. We have some of the most experienced workers comp attorneys in Austin, and they have witnessed first hand how employer negligence can lead to employees being forced into unsafe situations.

If you have experienced a work-related injury resulting from your employer’s failure to create a safe working environment, one of our on-the-job injury attorneys will review your case to determine if your rights as a worker have been violated. Our workers comp attorneys are among the best in Austin. Whether you feel as though your worker’s compensation settlement is less than what you are entitled to, or if you believe the violation goes beyond simply preventing you from earning a living, we are here to help. 

How can an on-the-job injury attorney help you?

Many of us assume worker’s compensation insurance will cover all expenses following a work-related injury. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. Having an experienced attorney can help in any one of the following situations: 

  • Your employer simply will not report the injury
  • Your employer does not pay for worker’s compensation insurance
  • The compensation you received is less than what was promised
  • Rather than paying you what you deserve, your employer chooses to instead terminate your employment
  • You have waited an extended period of time but have not received the worker’s compensation settlement to which you are entitled

You work hard to serve your company. They owe it to you to help with your injury. As your number one advocate, an on-the-job injury attorney will make sure everyone who is responsible for the injury occurring is held to account. 

How do I choose a workers comp attorney in Austin?

If you are searching for a workplace injury attorney in Austin, you have many options available to you. It might seem as though little separates one law firm from another. At Alex R. Hernandez Jr. PLLC, however, we believe experience matters. 

Our on-the-job injury attorneys will fight for you no matter the size of your employer. For the past 20 years, we have taken on complex workplace injury cases and have won time and time again. 

It is also important to us that our services are accessible to everyone. Money should not hold anyone back from exceptional legal counsel, which is why we allow our clients to opt into payment plans to cover their services. Many of our cases are also taken on a contingency fee, which means we only win if you win.
